We need to join forces, I only clean the outside never cleaned the inside. Dusty plastic doesn't rust so I can't be bothered to deal with it
Ok, we can do this, we just can't screw it up like last time.
I haven't gone yet either because I'm afraid it's something like this....
I'll go if you go... better yet, JKCON this FRIDAY! I just saw there are fabulous PRIZES.
Those some funny chit lines right there!
Don't fret man, I think we all imagine this as dirtman when he first runs across our rig on the trail.
They say never meet your heroes. haha.
i thought it was dropping them into a martini you had to drink to the group with after successfully picking-up olives with your butt-cheeks
That's how I got my WAL membership. If I pop out the other end of the Rubicon and everyone refers to me as "Peter Pan" you know what happened.
I miss my old trusty IH backhoe. Yeah, it was older than dirt and parts were getting REALLY hard to find, but she ran well and had so much power.
A few weeks ago I rented a "mini" Kubota backhoe from Home Depot. What a gutless POS. Took hours to dig out a tree stump the old IH would have had out in 5 minutes. And then the Kubota could not pick it up after it was out. I had to roll it away like a dung beetle rolling a ball of shit!
Pics of the backhoe please! Jealous...……..
IH - That's a real backhoe. I'm a Kubota guy, so I understand your frustration behind what I assume to be a BX model's inability to scratch anything below about 6" of dirt. I imagine it was great at pulling itself around the yard every time you stuck the bucket into the soil. BX / B Series frames are too light to do work and you spend 75% of the time fighting the tractor instead of digging.
Here are a couple of my hoes.
Here I'm trying to tear off wiring
B Series are great for tight spaces (i.e. fence lines and grape rows) but the L Series is where they start getting useful. I've dungbeetled my fair share of stumps, never thought of it that way but funny as hell.
Kubota diesels are bullet proof. I will give them that.
I'm in. Need to borrow my sazall?
edit: wait a minute. Why is this hid in the Regional Forums all sneaky like? thedirtman WILL find you.
Dude. I was hiding it from the builds that require cutting shit. If it makes you feel better, I went a little crazy cutting back the bumper horns, so now my winch sits halfway into the grill. It was liberating to cut crap off and not care.
edit: probably better move this shit show to chit-chat.
